One reader thinks the criticism of Clive Lewis is disproportionate. What do you think?

In reference to the article (November 21) concerning MP Clive Lewis mimicking shooting himself in the House of Commons during a debate about the Finance Bill: give the guy a break!

He has a right to self-expression whichever way he chooses, like every human being.

There is no human right not to be offended. If this witch hunt to stop us expressing ourselves goes on in the name of political correctness, we will have a North Korea-like culture in Britain.

He should make no apology for being himself in my opinion. Are we getting nearer to total censorship?
